A Zeppelin shot down by the forts at Libau, and the crew captured. Fog interferes with fighting in Alsace, which has been in progress for some days. The British repulse an attack on Givenchy, near La Bassée. Mr. Bryan refutes the charge that the American Government had shown partiality to the Allies. The German Imperial Chancellor issues a new apologia for his “scrap of paper” suggestion.
